RUMOR: the protagonist of AC: Comet is a Templar named Shay
A source mentioned that Assassin’s Creed Comet would happen in 1758 and that would have the main character is a guy who would answer to the name of Shay revealed more information on the mysterious title which, so far, Ubisoft has not yet announced. According to Gameblog , the French site that reported the information over the network, Comet pass in North America, specifically in the Atlantic Ocean and Shay is actually a Templar, the enemy faction of murderers.
Supposedly, the title allows players to embark to New York and sail the seas again, including the Atlantic Ocean, and is reunited with some familiar faces from previous installments of the series: Haytham Kenway (son of Edward Kenway, star of Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag , and father of Connor, the protagonist of Assassin’s Creed III) and Adewale (the murderer of DLC Cry Freedom , who will captain apparently betray Shay).
We emphasize that none of this is official, but rumorst ensures that the protagonist is the grandson of Adewale and his odyssey is to find Connor Kenway to receive his teachings. We are waiting for Ubisoft to offer statements that go beyond their usual response: “We do not comment on rumors and speculation.”
We will just need to wait until Ubisoft releases statement on Assassin’s Creed Comet.
